DAY TWO

683 More of Brotherhood on Trial

Just a day after an Egyptian court handed down the death sentence to 529 members of the Muslim Brotherhood, that same court on Tuesday will begin a mass trial of 683 Islamist suspects facing charges of murder and sabotage. The first verdict came after only a two-day trial. Only 60 of the 683 defendants were in court on Tuesday—623 of them are being tried in absentia.
